New multi-sensory opera at Riverside Studios
A new, multi-sensory opera inspired by the life of deaf astronomer Annie Jump-Cannon will be featured as part of Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival 2012 at London's Riverside Studios on 11 and 12 August.
A Quiet Life by Stephen Bentley Klein and Sarah Grange invites you to explore how sound can be translated or interpreted for deaf audiences, as well as how sound can be manipulated to speak to a hearing audience about the experience of deafness.
The piece will integrate British Sign Language, captioning, techniques linked to vibration and visual interpretation of sound, live audio manipulation and inclusive staging. It is suitable for people who can hear and people who can’t.
During the 20-minute work-in-progress the audience will move around the theatre space so as to be fully involved in the production, however there will be some seating for those less able to stand.
Dates: Saturday 11 August, 8pm, and Sunday 12 August, 5pm.
